PSA - Beware when you interview with Salesforce

Accepted an offer from Salesforce 3 weeks ago and was told to wait for written offer. Since then been told VP is reviewing and the approval is delayed due to an off-site.

Found out last night that they have reposted the same opening back online and now my application shows “candidate withdrew interest”.

Meanwhile, recruiter has now stopped responding and I have not gotten an “official” update. Just left hanging.

I am assuming Salesforce decided to rescind the offer but just never told me and let me on for weeks. Trying to confirm if I am jumping to conclusions but hard to know when no one will tell me what is going on exactly.

Just wanted to vent here, as it’s a very frustrating situation where I can do nothing but move on

    Wow that is pretty messed up.

    Might as well troll a little and re-apply to the same position.

    I had this happen when I interviewed somewhere a few years back. The req was closed after they said they would make an offer and it just died. Not fun to experience that but I did find out 1-2 years later that others started leaving in droves... so it all ended up working out for the best.
